What the Grand Jury Knew--and We Didn't--in the Eric Garner Case - Jack Kerwick
I'm sure you heard this information in the American media [sarcasm].
Of course, that wouldn't serve the racism meme very well...
At Townhall.com, Jack Kerwick has found this out:
"For months, twenty-three strangers, black, white, and Hispanic, poured over 60 items of evidence. These included four videos—i.e. significantly more footage than that on which the pontificators in the media and elsewhere have been feeding; medical records; autopsy photographs; photos from the scene of the alleged crime; and information on NYPD policies, procedures, and officer training.
Also among the evidence was testimony on the part of 50 witnesses. No fewer than 22 of these witnesses were civilians. The remainder consists of police officers, EMTs, and doctors.
The grand jury also received instruction in the 'relevant principles of law' concerning an officer’s right to use force."
